Broadcast Pix is launching a range of video production switchers with browser control that allows a studio to be controlled remotely over IP and from a tablet or phone.
The BPswitch models are the FX, MX, and GX with each providing up to 22 SDI inputs and 12 outputs.
Features include BPNet, hybrid SDI and IP I/O, streaming, NewBlueNTX graphics and optional robotic camera control. The switchers can be upgraded to 4K and will ship in September, costing from £9,600.
BPswitch enables control from tablets, phones and laptops using the Broadcast Pix Commander user interface, which can run in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. It can control a local BPswitch or a remote BPswitch over IP using BPNet.
“We’ve effectively leap-frogged the industry by combining our patented networkable switcher technology with the cloud technology from our ioGates acquisition,” explained chief executive Kevin Prince.
“I think it’s fair to call this disruptive technology, because it fundamentally changes our industry’s concept of a control room by distributing it.”
Broadcast Pix has also announced that its BPview multi-view can now be used in a browser.
